24 Preludes Op 28 & Schiff on Chopin
This recital was filmed in the beautiful, meticulously restored Ancient Conservatoire in Paris, where the composer himself frequently gave concerts. The 24 Preludes are amongst Chopin's most wonderful and important works. Also included on this DVD is a documentary wherein Andres Schiff, one of today's great pianists, charts Chopin's life, explores his genius and plays substantial extracts from his work. A wealth of archive material is employed to document the composer's story.
